RingCentral Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide Report
Positioned furthest to the right within the Leaders quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute
BELMONT, Calif. — October 15, 2018 — RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that Gartner has recognised RingCentral as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide report.* In the Magic Quadrant report, published on October 10, 2018, RingCentral was positioned furthest to the right within the Leaders quadrant for completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“Customers are increasingly recognising that RingCentral’s collaborative communications approach is unlocking the next level of business productivity and empowering their workforce to work the way they want—anytime, anywhere, and on any device,” said Dave Sipes, Chief Operating Officer at RingCentral. “We believe that our position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a testament to our laser focus on driving continuous innovation brought to market globally through world-class enterprise delivery capabilities.”
According to Gartner, “By 2021, 90% of IT leaders will not purchase new premises-based UC infrastructure — up from 50% today — because future cloud UC offerings will be far ahead in terms of features, functions, portals, analytics and dashboards.”
